The Masculine Nose

There are special considerations that must be addressed when performing male cosmetic nose surgery as opposed to rhinoplasty on females. A straight bridge and a nasal tip that projects at a 90-degree angle are common characteristics of the male nose, whereas the female nose has a softer and narrower bridge. Strong features and straight lines are created to avoid a scooped or sloped feminine appearance. At Ambay Plastic Surgery in Wesley Chapel, Tampa, we ensure that a nose job accentuates the masculine characteristics of our male patients.

Our male rhinoplasty surgery is customized to your facial features. A nose job can also enhance your ability to breathe by correcting problems such as a deviated septum and other structural abnormalities. Our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Raj Ambay, can change your nose size, shape and profile in various ways to address nasal asymmetry and deviation.

What Is a Male Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty(also known as a nose job), according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is listed as one of the top five cosmetic procedures performed on men in 2020. This intricate surgical procedure is designed to reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose. It involves making incisions in the skin, removing or augmenting portions of the underlying bone and cartilage, altering any desired features, and then closing up the incisions with sutures or tape. The goal is to create a more aesthetically pleasing and masculine contour by improving nasal balance and symmetry. Male rhinoplasties are often performed on men who feel self-conscious about their noses being too large or irregularly shaped. This surgery can also help improve breathing issues that may be due to structural abnormalities in the nose.

How Is Male Rhinoplasty Performed?

Benefits of a Male Rhinoplasty

The benefits of the male nose job go beyond just aesthetics; it can also provide relief from breathing problems caused by structural issues in the nose, such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates. By improving airflow through the nose, rhinoplasty can even reduce snoring and help those who suffer from sleep apnea get a better night’s rest. Other benefits of the procedure include:

  • Improved confidence
  • A balanced facial profile
  • A more masculine contour
  • Improved size, shape, and overall appearance of the nose

How Is Male Rhinoplasty Performed?

A nose job is considered to be one of the most intricate cosmetic procedures, which is why it’s essential to enlist the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Amaby. The various techniques for reshaping the nose requires not just surgical precision, but an artistic touch too – as you can see in Dr. Ambay’s rhinoplasty before and after male patients.

During your consultation, Dr. Ambay will present the best rhinoplasty surgical plan to achieve the perfect male nose for you, and discuss any concerns and questions that you may have. He will help create a natural-looking nose to fit the proportions of your face and enhance your masculine facial features.

The surgery is ordinarily performed whilst the patient is under light general anesthesia. It is done as an outpatient procedure at our state-of-the-art surgery center within Ambay Plastic Surgery in Wesley Chapel. The procedure usually takes between 2-3 hours and will require a follow-up consultation during recovery.

Your surgery will include the following steps:

  • Anesthesia is administered
  • Incisions are made
  • Reshaping of the nose structure
  • A deviated septum is corrected
  • Incision/s are closed
What Can Men Expect During Their Recovery

Post Procedure and Recovery

A splint may be placed over your nose, along with tape for shape maintenance during the healing phase. It is also normal for swelling to continue for a few weeks after your surgery. Dr. Ambay will give you specific post-surgery instructions that you need to follow with great care to ensure the best outcome.

These instructions may include:

  • How to care for your nose
  • When to apply or orally take medication
  • What concerns to look out for during the recovery process
  • Follow-up process

It may take up to a year for your nose to refine to the more permanent outcome of the male rhinoplasty surgery.

Am I a Candidate for Men’s Rhinoplasty?

If you are unhappy with the shape, size, or overall appearance of your nose, or you suffer from breathing difficulties or snoring caused by a deviated septum or other nasal irregularities, you may be an ideal candidate for a male nose job. You must also be in good overall health, have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of your surgery, as well as be able to refrain from smoking or taking certain medications before and after your surgery that may have an impact on recovery and healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is a male rhinoplasty?

There are a number of instances that may impact the male rhinoplasty cost, such as any combined procedures, or aftercare needs. A full pricing overview will be discussed at your consultation, along with any financing options.

What are the risks associated with male nose surgery?

Male rhinoplasty surgery risks are no different from rhinoplasty surgery in general – such as reaction to anesthesia, infection, swelling, bruising, bleeding, numbness or scarring. Working with a board-certified surgeon, however, minimizes risks and promotes the best surgical outcome.

What other procedures can I have alongside rhinoplasty?

Combining procedures is an ideal way to cut downtime, as well as improve other areas of the face or body. We offer a number of men’s procedures that can be combined with rhinoplasty, including eyelid surgery, neck lift, facelift, hair restoration, or liposuction. We also offer a number of rejuvenating non-surgical treatments performed by board-certified specialist Dr. Aparna Ambay.

Will I still look like myself after rhinoplasty?

A male rhinoplasty is designed to improve and elevate the masculine profile and is customized to each patient depending on their needs and aesthetic goals. Your nose may take up to a year to ‘settle’ into its new permanent shape, but you should be reaping the benefits of your refined and natural results soon after your surgery.
